By now many of us will have heard about or seen the hybrid electric buses circling the city of Liverpool - that's right I said Liverpool, not London.
After an array...
Audi has launched a new YouTube video starring both past and present Spock actors from the science fiction hit, Star Trek.
As many will already know, Star Trek Into Darkness film has just hit the silver screen. The new Star Trek see's Zachary Quinto taking on the role of Spock - previously played by Leonard Nimoy.
The main talking point of the film is the comical way in which Audi compares its Audi S7 model (new Spock) to a Mercedes CLS model (old Spock).
Another talking point of the advert is that Mazda are officially the automotive partner of Paramount Pictures, meaning...
Museums are great. They give you an insight into past years of amazing history, whether it is art, war or, in this case, the automotive industry.
On a recent trip down south to Gaydon, I found myself gazing at some of the automotive world's most intriguing treasures at the Heritage Motor Museum.
Walking around the museum, I took a few snaps of a number of interesting cars, some old, some new.
So, sit back and enjoy a quick, virtual, 'Wikipedia-esque' walkthrough of the Heritage Motor Museum.

On this day nineteen years ago the iconic Formula One racing driver Ayrton Senna passed away following a fatal accident whilst leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. To this day he remains the last driver fatality in the sport F1.
For years during and after his racing career, Senna has been frequently acclaimed as one of the best Formula One drivers of all time.
Both public polls and other F1 drivers alike have frequently remarked on the Brazilian driver's remarkable natural talent for pace and race craft on the circuit.
Ayrton Senna is also one of the most successful F1 drivers to...
There are certain cars that are so massively popular you can expect to see them all around the world - the best selling/award winning Ford Fiesta for example.
But with a change of scenery, comes a shift in automotive popularity, something of which I myself found to be true on a recent trip to Rome.
While exploring the streets of the gladiatorial city, I took a few snaps of some of the cars which I found to be intriguing, rare or downright strange.
The Citroen 2CV began its journey in 1948 and has since become one of the coolest looking vintage cars...
First of all, the reason we have picked just three is because, well three is bad enough. We have scoured the archives and found three of the most controversial car adverts in the world.
These ads have pushed the boundaries of creative marketing and in all three instances have crossed the moral line.
Although an advert is supposed to catch your eye and keep your eyes glued to the screen, these three adverts cross some contentious boundaries that make you think of anything but the actual product it is selling.
Take a look at our pick of the three most controversial car...
Some people dream of owning that classic Chevy or Mustang, hoping for a garage full of vintage classics that whet the appetite of both the motoring enthusiast and the boy racer inside of them.
Many of these famous car models are renowned for appearing on the silver screen, ripping up the roads in classic films like the Italian Job (Mini Cooper), Bullit (Ford Mustang) and even 007 (Aston Martin DB5).
But let's be honest, a garage full of dream film cars is very unlikely. Thanks to Hot Wheels and other collectible companies however, we can replace these famous film cars with scaled...

5. Morgan Plus 4
Put Stephen Fry behind the wheel, speeding round the countryside and you've got the epitome of Britishness summed up. Since 1910, the Morgan family has produced vehicles and the legacy that is Morgan has never left the family.

Sometimes manufacturers will go to great lengths to advertise what is in their showrooms - only natural I suppose. Some of these advertisements are carefully structured works of art that hint at the elegant and dynamic nature of a cars sense of presence, bespoke design, blah blah blah.
Other adverts acknowledge the fact that people just want to see cool, high-octane videos that keep you glued to your seat.
This can be anything from catching a golf ball travelling at 178mph (Mercedes), hardcore mother rap (Fiat) or cramming copious amounts of bananas into a car (Toyota).
We countdown the top ten...
Already existing in numerous countries, although the exact requirements vary, Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) allows new drivers to build up their driving skills and experience gradually on a well structured basis.
Many have cited increased car accident involving young drivers as the reason to introduced GDL. Research conducted by 'Brake', the road safety charity, have found that young drivers are more likely to seek thrill from driving fast and cornering at high speeds, when compared with older drivers.
Furthermore, its research has found that young males carry the greatest risk, as 17-20 year-old male drivers are almost ten times more likely to...
